Nature’s Sunshine and ZU Direct believe customer wellbeing always comes first. We realise how lucky we are in so many ways, and we want to express our gratitude by supporting charitable causes in any way we can.
For this reason ZU Direct are pleased to officially announce that our chosen charity of 2016/17 is:
Macmillan Cancer Support
With 1 in 3 people in the UK currently affected by cancer*, this selection was very personal to the staff at Head Office, especially as many have had direct experience of the fantastic care and support Macmillan nurses provide. We want to do what we can to aid the work of those who are supporting people affected by cancer. (*source: Macmillan)

AT HOME HERE IN THE UK
Here in the UK we have supported a number of charity and community projects over the years, including donating to ‘Greenfingers’, a charity that creates magical gardens in children’s hospices all over the country.
We also sponsor students at Norton College in Worcestershire by donating supplements specifically aimed at improving learning skills and behaviour of students with severe learning difficulties and behavioural problems.
Globally Nature's Sunshine supports the work of the Sunshine Heroes Foundation, established in 2007 by two NSP Distributors living in Russia. Unable to start a family of their own, they looked to adopt from one of the many Russian orphanages. Shocked by the appalling conditions they found, they were determined to do something to help. Since then, the foundation has helped to improve the lives of children all over the world.
The Sunshine Heroes Foundation works with other organisations to support children all over the world, giving them vital medical treatment, education, and loving homes. Each partner organisation is vetted by the foundation to ensure that as much money as possible gets to where it’s needed,
